Ecology and Environment

The Raptor Center, part of the College of Veterinary Medicine on the St. Paul Campus, has seen a record number of eaglets so far in 2018. The Center rehabilitates injured raptors for re-release into the wild.

TV station Kare-11 did a story about the rehabilitation process, which can be seen on their website: Raptor Center works to help record number of eaglets.

The Center’s director, Dr. Julia Ponder (Veterinary Population Medicine), who is seen in the video, is a Principal Investigator at MSI. She uses MSI for a project studying the immune impacts of pesticide exposure on birds.
